After a shootout loss in Sunrise on Tuesday, a banged up Detroit team will head to Tampa to face division rival, the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Pavel Datsyuk returned to the Red Wings lineup Tuesday after missing the previous seven games with a concussion and had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss against the Florida Panthers. Datsyuk skated on the top line between Todd Bertuzzi and Johan Franzen, which totaled two goals and five points. Datsyuk has 13 goals and 25 points in 25 games and still leads the League with 41 takeaways.

This will be the second of five games between the two teams. In the opener on November 9, Teddy Purcell scored 3:51 into overtime and Ben Bishop made 25 saves to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 win. Henrik Zetterberg scored both goals for the Red Wings. Tonight, the Wings will look to avenge that loss at Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Welcome to the Detroit Red Wings Game Day Blog, where you can get behind-the-scenes information, thoughts from players and staff, and up-to-date news on anything and everything Red Wings on game day.

You can watch tonight's 7:30 PM matchup on Fox Sports Detroit or NHL-Network, or listen in with Ken Kal and Paul Woods on AM 1270.

Since coming back into the lineup, Brendan Smith has been red hot. In his last seven games, Brendan Smith holds a +7 rating and has 3 assists, including a career high 2-assist performance in last Sunday's 5-0 win in New York.

He's Detroit's 'Hot Wing' by Buffalo Wild Wings!
